    Gateway Pundit ^ | 8/28/2015 | Kristinn Taylor
    The Washington Post published a column Thursday night by David Ignatius that purports to clear leading Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton of wrongdoing in exclusively using a home brew server kept in her home that held top secret classified information during her four year tenure as secretary of state. The column is entitled The Hillary Clinton e-mail ‘scandal’ that isn’t. Ignatius’ lead defense witness for Clinton is one Jeffrey Smith who is given four paragraphs of quotes defending Clinton. Ignatius identifies Smith as “a former CIA general counsel who’s now a partner at Arnold & Porter, where he often represents...
  • Hillary claimed in 2003 that she was 'adamantly against illegal immigrants'

    'I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants,' Clinton told the John Gambling Radio Show in February 2003, when she was in her third year as a U.S. senator. 'Certainly we’ve got to do more at our borders,' she added. 'And people have to stop employing illegal immigrants.' On Tuesday in Las Vegas, however, Hillary told a room full of high school-age illegal immigrants that if she becomes America's next president, 'I will fight for comprehensive immigration reform and a path to citizenship.'

    How Huma Abedin Operated At The Center Of The Clinton Universe By Rosalind S. Helderman and Tom Hamburger August 27 As Hillary Rodham Clinton was preparing for her farewell international trip as secretary of state, her close aide and confidante Huma Abedin e-mailed a small number of longtime political allies to help arrange an intimate get-together at a private club in Dublin. “Maybe we can all gather for drinks/dinner and HRC can come join for as long as she can?” Abedin wrote. The December 2012 event showcased the unique position that Abedin occupied at the apex of the Clintons’ public...

    GOP frontrunner Donald Trump on Friday ripped longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her hubby Anthony Weiner, calling the ex-Congressman a “perv” and a “sleazebag” during a speech in Boston. Trump said that Abedin — whose first name he repeatedly mispronounced “Ooma” — worked closely with the former first lady and has access to classified information. “And who is Huma married to?” Trump asked, according to The Hill. “One of the great sleazebags of our time, Anthony Weiner.”

    Democratic leaders are increasingly frustrated by Hillary Rodham Clinton’s failure to put to rest questions about her State Department email practices and ease growing doubts among voters about her honesty and trustworthiness. On top of that, many say, her repeated jokes and dismissive remarks on the email controversy suggest that she is not treating it seriously enough. Interviews with more than 75 Democratic governors, lawmakers, candidates and party members have laid bare a widespread bewilderment that Mrs. Clinton has allowed a cloud to settle over her candidacy — by using a private email server in the first place, since it...

    In a challenging field of competitors, Fox News Channel’s Andrew Napolitano has a strong entry for the most laughable legal analysis of the Indiana religious-freedom law. In an April Fool’s Day op-ed that he evidently means to be taken seriously, Napolitano argues that state Religious Freedom Restoration Act laws are unconstitutional. Napolitano’s core claim is that the Supreme Court, in its 1997 ruling in Boerne v. Flores, ruled that the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act is unconstitutional. In Boerne the Court ruled that Congress lacked the constitutional power to apply the federal RFRA against the states. Napolitano accurately summarizes...

    Does Hillary Clinton have a serious legal problem because she may have transmitted classified information on her private e-mail server? After talking with a half-dozen knowledgeable lawyers, I think this “scandal” is overstated. Using the server was a self-inflicted wound by Clinton, but it’s not something a prosecutor would take to court. “It’s common” that people end up using unclassified systems to transmit classified information, said Jeffrey Smith, a former CIA general counsel who’s now a partner at Arnold & Porter, where he often represents defendants suspected of misusing classified information. There are always these back channels,” Smith explained. “It’s...

    The most disturbing aspect of the scandal around Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server during her tenure as secretary of state is not the former first lady’s penchant for secrecy. What’s truly unsettling is that it has been widely taken as read among both the media and the general public that Mrs. Clinton will likely avoid serious legal consequences for her behavior because the Justice Department is ultimately answerable to President Obama – and Democrats will not use the instruments of government to destroy one of their own. Whether that eventually proves true, the sentiment itself reveals a...

After realizing the open carry charge would likely not hold, a madeup charge of disorderly conduct was added. The BKPD Chief of Police, Judge, & prosecuting attorney appear to oppose Act 746 & the 2nd amendment in general.

    The Quinnipiac University poll, released Thursday, also shows Donald Trump smashing the GOP presidential competition garnering 28% support from registered Republican voters in the 17-member field. The real estate mogul's closest competitor is retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who tallies 12%. Just 7% said they would vote for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a record low since November 2013. Those results show just how far both Trump -- now the Republican front-runner -- and Bush -- the old one -- have come. Bush led national polls for much of the first half of 2015, but was quickly dislodged by Trump, after...

    President Barack Obama is the man in the middle, caught between the White House aspirations of two of his closest advisers: Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. For months, White House officials expected Clinton to be the Democratic nominee in the 2016 election. Some of Obama's top political advisers moved to New York to run her campaign and Obama appeared to give his tacit approval, saying she would be an "excellent president." But that bet on Clinton suddenly looks less certain. With Biden weighing his own presidential run more seriously amid signs of weakness...

    Even close friends of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a notorious cheater who had numerous affairs while with past wives Emily Black and Mary Richardson, think his new wife, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Cheryl Hines, was crazy to marry him and think he’d be faithful. [Snip] “Any woman who gets involved with Bobby does so with her eyes open, or their brains lopped off,” said the so-called friend. “Any woman who thinks they’re going to change Bobby is misguided and purposefully ignorant. Women have to understand what they’re getting into when they’re with him.”

    ...Such messages contain sensitive “keywords” distinguishing them from unclassified information, even if the material didn’t bear a classified heading as she claims. The secretary would have known better, the department ­officials say, because she was trained to understand the difference when she was “read in” on procedures to ID and handle classified information by diplomatic-security officials in 2009. Clinton also went through a so-called “read-off” when she left ­office in 2013. In that debriefing, security officials reminded her of her duty to return all classified documents, including ones in which the classification status is “uncertain,” which would have included the...

    On my weekly appearance with Hugh Hewitt, we discussed the latest revelations re 45th President presumptive: HUGH HEWITT: Mark, I have a proposition. No other politician in the western world in any democracy – whether ours, Canada, Great Britain, Australia – could survive the conduct that Hilary Clinton has engaged in whose last name was not Clinton. Agree or disagree? MARK STEYN: Yeah, I think that's true - and it's one of these situations where people think "Oh well, that's just Bill and Hilary. That's just what they do." And usually it's just something that is a personal benefit to...

    The American Interest ^ | August 21, 2015 | Walter Russell Mead
    How do the Clintons, dogged by scandal and suspicion at every turn, not just stay afloat in American political life, but thrive? The contrast between the apparent inevitability that surrounded Hillary Clinton’s procession toward the Democratic presidential nomination for so long and the air of scandal and suspicion that seems to trail behind her wherever she goes is striking. And it points to something important: Hillary Clinton isn’t a candidate borne aloft on a wave of popular enthusiasm. She is no JFK, no Ronald Reagan. She is no George Wallace or William Jennings Bryan. The marching bands processing before her...

    Conflicting accounts of when data was removed from Hillary Clinton's private server indicate copies of emails known to contain classified information may reside on a device other than the one presently in FBI custody. She may have printed 55,000 pages of emails for submission to the State Department from a different device than the one presently in FBI custody.

  • As Hillary implodes, the Democrats have no real Plan B

    The summer has not been kind to Hillary Clinton. The drip-drip-drip of revelations about her possible misuse and mishandling of classified information threatens to become a deluge in the fall. They have taken a serious toll on her reputation — and even more notably, her treatment by liberal media figures who surely would rather she be elected even if the Risen Christ were to be the Republican nominee. Democrats are worried — so worried five donors who raised millions for President Obama as well as Obama’s chief Florida strategist have both sworn off Hillary and joined an effort to draft...

    Vice President Joe Biden made a surprise visit to Washington, D.C.’s Naval Observatory on Saturday for a confidential talk with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), CNN reported. Biden’s return to the District comes amid buzz he is seriously weighing a 2016 Oval Office bid. CNN said that two sources confirmed the pair’s face-to-face, the biggest indicator yet that Biden is seriously tempted by an Oval Office bid next year.“The vice president traveled last minute to Washington, D.C. for a private meeting and will be returning to Delaware,” an aide told CNN. Biden spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff declined further comment on the alleged...

    I imagine most of you have been following the Hillary Clinton email scandal, which has gotten more and more … interesting … since I last wrote about it. At that time, the inspectors general had only revealed emails that were properly classified CONFIDENTIAL, or marked SENSITIVE BUT UNCLASSIFIED, which is a special State Department marking for things that wouldn’t cause damage to our national security but would make things uncomfortable for someone State was working with.Since then, of course, we know that at least two more emails have been identified as TOP SECRET, and that’s a whole ’nother kettle of...

    The conservative Upstate got a taste of “Bernie-mania” on Friday.Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders drew roughly 2,800 people to the TD Convention Center for the self-described democratic socialist’s first campaign event in the state. The U.S. senator, an independent from Vermont, spoke for about an hour, delivering a fiery speech on why he thinks the United States has failed to deliver enough jobs, wages, education and healthcare to the middle and working classes, and to protect them under the law, based on their racial, sexual or income status. The crowd came from near and far – some from the Greenville...

Charles Krauthammer: The issue of anchor babies or birthright citizenship, it is a sideshow because it’s a symptom…Laura Ingraham: There’s quite a debate about whether the 14th Amendment has to be repealed. I know a lot of people glibly say… That’s not actually been settled and you could do a whole hour on the jurisprudence surrounding that.Krauhammer: It’s been around...
